Will Chuck, Chuck, Chuck, Chuck, Chuck sink Carly Fiorina’s presidential bid?

In one of the better US TV shows, Meet the Press, Carly Fiorina was pressed on whether she lied in the recent Republican debate about seeing a video of a fetus. Here’s one part of the interview:

Todd said to Fiorina, “Well, the footage you describe at best is a reenactment … The people that made the videos admit it’s stock footage. Yet, you went right along and said, ‘It’s Planned Parenthood.'”
Fiorina answered:

Chuck, Chuck, Chuck, Chuck, Chuck. Do you think this is not happening? Does Hillary Clinton think this is not happening? So sad that you missed the opportunity to ask Mrs. Clinton why she said, ‘Late-term abortions were only performed for medical purposes.’ That is patently false. This is happening in America today. And taxpayers are paying for it. That is a fact. It is a reality. And no one can run away from it.

Fiorina did not directly answer the question put to her, and this is now haunting her campaign appearances. With recent polls showing that her stock is rising compared to Donald Trump, who seems to have stalled a bit, I would not be surprised to see Trump’s camp seize on this to discredit her.
